When I first singed up I was not too sure as to how I should begin my weight loss success blog. I have the idea of the purpose for my writing but I am a bit lost for words. My desire is to share and document the last round of my fight against obesity, I have wanted to do this for a long time now and today I am officially beginning the recording of the last weeks of my fat burning diet before I am a new me. My goal was to lose 280 pounds without weight loss surgery, and its been three years now since I first began. It has been a long hard road for me and I know for a lot of you as well. So here is my blog for hope, inspiration, support and love.
Before I begin heres my plan that I hope works out. :-)
The plan is to document each day, i.e., every other day, on:
- My blog (here)
- Google Video
- Other popular social networks
With all hope, I will develop the discipline for getting even a small amount of work done each day. Consistency is the key, I know this, but the thing is to learn how to be a consistent person. Growing up my daily teachings did not include the necessary skills for the development of discipline.
The discipline needed for learning new things, and for the changing and growing as a person. Patience, consistency, determination and discipline are some of the most important skills every one needs to have in life, and like many they where my weaknesses. My Achilles heel, and since I have been able to recognize this in myself; the last few years have been a work in progress for me to correct them. It is hard changing especially knowing its not what I am used to, but it needs to be done.
But for me the change is necessary, I have to stop dreaming about being more patient for what I want, as well as dreaming about being consistent in doing good and staying motivated. Dreaming of having determination to go after what I dream of, also dreaming of having the discipline to improve on who I am. It is a good thing to dream that way you can have an idea about what it is you want. At the same time, it gives you the ideas as to how to reach your goals, but the thing is not to let the easy part of dreaming take control of you.
You see I am a dreamer, I always dream, i.e., I let it take control of my time, imagining myself achieving any goals I may have an interest in at the particular moment or season. Allow me to explain a little bit about what I mean, this time last year my dream was to learn C++ so that I may be able to write games and apps for the iPhone. For a few weeks, I attempted to learn the Python and C++ programing languages, until another dream developed and new season began.
Another project will not be set aside to collect dust, I do not want to dream any more, it has exhausted me over years and I am very tired. So now, I am taking the first step for the changing of whom I am, and my goal is to be more outgoing and persistent in achieving the dream I have dreamt since my youth.
For as far back as I can remember I have dreamt of being skinny or as I see it normal. Growing up with a large family and many friends, I saw them do many things that I wish I were able to do. It was the small things too, the things that they took for granted. Things like roller blading, swimming at the beach without a shirt, swimming under water without having their fat force them to float to the top, riding roller coasters and running are just a few of the normal activities I missed out on. However, things are going to change soon, I will get to experience the freedom I have been dreaming of having, it has been a long and strenuous journey, and soon I will be reaching the end of it.
